STUART VARNEY (HOST): I do want to go back to the corporations funding travel expenses, and abortion itself, for some of their employees. I’d like to ask you about the morality of that. And also, is it symptomatic of American corporations diving into left-wing — essentially, left-wing politics, and pushing it to the rest of society? That’s the way I see it, how about you?

REP. DAN CRENSHAW (R-TX): Yeah, absolutely, and I’ve talked about this a lot on podcasts, and very other places. There is this strange, rather inexplicable trend of woke corporations just trending and trending leftward. They believe Twitter is real life, right? They believe the angry Twitter mob is real. They believe that the few radicals in their H.R. department are representative of everyone, when in fact they’re not. And, I wish they would stand up to this nonsense, and simply stay out of politics. This is — this is dividing our country in very serious ways, where you can't go buy a Coke or buy some Nike shoes without thinking about their politics. Can't go watch a baseball game or a football game without having to think about politics. It’s driving our citizens crazy, and CEOs should know better and stop giving into it, because it’s nonsense.
